    Hi! I have n00bily been trying to create volumes in Freenas for a while. For some reason I am unable to get a list of the drives installed.

    [IMG]

    I have four identical drives installed (samsung spinpoint 750gb), and they all show up in post and in bios. The box has been used as a windows home server, so I thought perhaps it was due to some formatting. I deleted all partitions on them, but I still cannot see any drives in the volume creator.

    Any tips on how to go about this? Where do I start troubleshooting?
    Thanks for your time!

    Please tell us about your hardware. It looks like maybe there's not a driver for your controller. Give us your hardware specs please.

    Clearly time-out problems with the SATA Controller... Welcome to the club.

    Oh noes, that doesn't sound good :) Is this a purely hardware related problem, or is there a possibility of a solution in the future, do you think? ... or is it something I can fix myself?

    ... though I am at least part of a club ;)

    A fix would have to come from FreeBSD upstream, so not very likely until FreeNAS8 switches to a newer version of the base OS. I "solved" this problem for myself by switching to a different motherboard. Now, I use this same motherboard which has problems in FreeNAS8, without any issues in FreeNAS0.7. If it is an option for you, I would suggest you try installing FreeNAS0.7 to see if it works for you.

    FreeNAS 8 = FreeBSD 8.2 = the latest stable release. I haven't looked at the FreeNAS 8.0.1 release, but it seems like it's FreeBSD 8.3. Someone else here can probably confirm or deny this.

    Sure wish we hade a (code) (/code) function on the forum. That way the dmesg output wouldn't need two posts and become such a wall-of-text. ;)

    FreeNAS 8.0.1-RC1 is based on FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE-p2.

    Ah. I assumed thet the increased ZFS-version in FreeNAS 8.0.1 meant that they were going to FreeBSD 8.3.

    There is a CODE function here, you just need to click on the 'Go Advanced' button below.

    Ok, thanks for all the replies :) I will perhaps give freenas 7 a try, then. Too bad though - because I really liked the freenas 8 interface and it's simplicity. Not to mention freenas8 is the new shiny one. Oh well, if everything goes wrong I can always revert to the old whs setup :p

    ... also I apologize for the lack of code tags :) Next post will be done properly!

    Is there a future version number that I should watch out for that I could use with my hardware?

    Sorry for the late suggestion, but have you tried disabling AHCI in your BIOS?

    Also, RC2 was just released today, can't hurt to give that a try.

    hallo guy,
    do you think there is some improvement to solve the problem we have with recognizing disks in the RC2?
    I've read the release note and no info about HDD....

    Thanks for all the tips, everybody! :)

    Unfortunately RC2 did not solve the issue, nor did turning off AHCI. My stupid machine :p I have yet to try freenas7, though :)
